Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Concerning The 'Jam Band' Label

i believe arb that its related to taking a tune with minimal lyrics such as d-star and totaly jam the tune into 20 mins also my opinion is that a "jamband" in never in the mainstream radio play.if you think back to fm radio the longest tunes they ever would play is free bird and stairway to heaven in which mainstream radio still plays till this day.oh yeah! framptons do you feel like i do is another that comes to mind another tune that gets played with some jammin but i think the label refers to bands who like to improvise and see where the music takes them. just a thought.:)

interesting your comment about minimal lyrics being part of the definition, i'll have to think about it ... so that would make Can a 'Jam Band'?
